Roxbury Baseball Comes Back in Third, Defeats West Morris Central
The Roxbury High School baseball team defeated West Morris Central 11-9 on Wednesday, rallying in the third inning after the Wolfpack had gained a 7-3 lead.  In that inning, Roxbury banged out five runs that, added to the three it scored in the first inning from walks and infield errors, put the Gaels on top 8-7.

Coming into the third inning with a good lead, West Morris failed to capitalize. Roxbury took the opposite approach, with singles by Andy Axelson and Dan Hankowski and a hard hit by Will Findlay, whose grounder to third was too hot to handle for the Wolfpack player, allowing two more Roxbury runners to cross the plate.  In the lead going into the fourth inning, the Gaels loaded the bases with walks and a double by Brian Dachowski. Then, Michael Roumes smashed a bases-clearing triple line-drive over third bringing the score to 11-3 where it stayed until the game ended.  The victory brings Roxbury's record to 9-4.

Great Response for Upcoming Layups 4 Life Basketball Tournament in Roxbury
The upcoming  Layups 4 Life basketball tournament  in Roxbury is on track to raise more money than ever for cancer research, according to its founder.

So far, more than 30 teams signed-up and registered to play in the 3-on-3 tournament taking place April 29 at Roxbury High School, said Dan Exter, who created the tournament in 2015. The event raises money to help fund cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), the facility that successfully treated Exter, a Roxbury High School graduate, when he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2013.

"As of today we have raised over $14,000," Exter said in an email on April 23. "We are on track to raise $15,000 by event day, which would be an all-time fundraising high leading into our 3v3 tournament."

RHS Financial Literacy this Summer
The New Jersey Department of Education has mandated that all students are required to complete a course (2.5 credits) in Financial Literacy to be eligible for graduation.

The course will be available to Roxbury High School rising juniors and seniors only during the summer of 2017. The course will begin on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 and run for approximately seven weeks. This interactive course will include writing assignments, labs, quizzes, and tests.

The final exam must be taken in person at Roxbury High School during the week of August 14, 2017. If the student does not fulfill all of the requirements for this class, no credit will be given and the appropriate grade will be listed on the student's transcript.
